outsourcing a good deal of -- of american jobs himself by putting money into energy companies, solar and wind energy companies that end up make their products outside the utes. if there's an outsourcer in chief it's the president in the united states, not the guy running to replace him. >> governor romney, in the business of outsourcing called pioneers. my experience has been working with outstanding members of labor and great managers to save the american auto industry. and as long as i'm president, i will keep fighting to make sure jobs are located here in the united states of america. >> meanwhile, the battle is growing over how much of the bush era tax cuts to extend. just to the middle class or to the wealthiest americans as well? both candidates invoked bill clinton to frame their strategies. >> i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business
5:31am
and job creators at the very time we need more jobs is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. this is the sort of thing that used to be in the democratic party in the times past. bill clinton called himself a new democrat pshgs he put that behind pimm. pe believes in smaller government, reformed welfare as we knew it and tried to get the economy going with trade, other provisions, lower taxes. look, new democrats have done good things. a lot of republicans have done some good things but this old style liberalism of bigger and bigger government and tax has got to end and we will end it in november. >> anybody making over $250,000 a year including me we were go back to the tax rates we were playing under bill clinton. a time when our economy created 22 million new job, biggest budget surplus in history and created plenty of millionaires to boot.
5:32am
>> vice president biden spent tuesday speaking to the hispanic community in las vegas. biden took a jab at mitt romney over his stance on illegal immigration policy and his refusal to turn over more tax returns. >> when his father was a candidate for president in 1968, his father released 12 years of tax returns, because he said, and i quote, "one year could be a fluke. perhaps done for show." that was his father. his son has released only one year of his tax returns. making a lie of the old adage, like father, like son. he wants you to show your papers, but he won't show us his. >> romney said tuesday there's nothing hidden in his returns. his campaign has called the continued questioning from obama's camp "unseemly and disgusting." turning oversea, rush is working to dramatically step up leverage
5:33am
over the conflict syria by sending near lay dozen warships to the region. some of those ship are expected to dock at the syrian port on the mediterranean. it's moscow's only foreign military base outside the former soviet union, explaining why russia is taking such pains to help assad and keep him from leaving power. on the situation in syria, 15 countries decide whether or not to extend a monitoring mission in the country. nbc's reporter joins us live from cairo. first, ayman what do you make of the role russia is playing in syria? >> reporter: well, there's a few ways to really look at this, jonathan. one, russia has been a big supporter of president assad. they have protected him in the diplomatic arena as they have vetoed sanctioned that would have called for tougher ankzs
5:34am
and provided an umbrella he will not be forced to step down under international pressure perp russia is involved. disdeployment of warships sbeptsbept ed interpreted in a few different ways saying russians are deploying to protect russian citizens and assets in the country if indeed they need to be evacuated. others say russia is trying to flex its muscles saying its military presence in the region will make it unlikely any western or foreign intervention will take place so long as their present inside and nearby the country. >> so ayman, the u.n. is considering extending their mission there, but can they do anything to stop the bloodshed? >> reporter: well, by most accounts, that u.n. mission has famed, because in its own assessment it has suspended its operations for the better part of the last month or so. so the u.n. itself is no longer observing the fragile cease-fire that actually took place when it began. has it been able to stop the violence? the short answer, no, it has not
5:35am
been able to. that's why many are calming on the u.n. to bring about a different approach. this observer mission has not stopped the violence and more importantly, neither side is abiding by it. >> ayman, turn to egypt. a tense situation playing out between the newly elected president and the military establishment. what's the risk the tension will spill out into the streets? >> reporter: well, there's no doubt that tension is once again building in egypt after a week of relative calm, because, again, late last evening the supreme constitutional court here issued its decision that the executive order that was issued by president tureen after discovered was unconstitutional. that means that the egyptian parliament democratically elected back in november now has officially been dissolved. no legal course, no appealing the decision. it raises tensions between the new president and the judicial and supreme council of the armed forces, both supported the dissolution of parliament. now the support, taken to the
5:36am
streets, supporters of the president. what will happen trying new tactics and bringing back this parliament. >> thank you. traders are hoping for a better open today after tuesday marked the fourth straight day. the dow fell. an early look at markets as we get all up in your business this morning. cnbc's karen choe join us us in london. karen, june was the best month for stocks since 1993. what will it take to get out of this mini slump? >> well, we're going right through corporate earnings season now. it's a difficult time for investors in the states. the turning point seemed to be the fourth of july a fairly decent run-up until independence day. after that, market falling in a straight line. the s&p 500 in particular down. now, the extent of the fall yesterday, the same. month to date, the main indices
